There is a new dress pattern in town – the Skola Dress and Top

Elegance and Elephants just released a new girls pattern for a knit dress/top just in time for back to school.  I got to be in her amazing team of testers.  This pattern was just perfect from the start.


This is the first one I made.  Size 5 and absolutely a perfect fit.  Anita loves dresses and knit dresses are just perfect for preschool.  Even though they might be simple enough I get tired of using the same pattern over and over again so it’s refreshing to have a new pattern in the mix.


The pattern includes a top, a simple A-line, a color-blocked A-line and a gathered skirt.  No collar, peter pan collar and a pointed collar.  Long sleeves, short sleeves and no sleeves.  Something for everybody for sure.  Here I made the color-blocked A-line with long sleeves and peter pan collar.  The red fabric is something I have had in my stash forever and I can’t remember where I bought it from, the pink one is this one from a Norwegian store Kjekk og søt.  Both were a delight to work with.


This one is the simpe A-line with the pointed collar.  I just love this silhouette and it’s oh so fast to make.  The fabric here is this one from Stoff og Stil.  Also a delight to work with.


Anita chose all of the fabrics herself and she loves her new dresses.  She has grown so much lately that I will have to make her a few more very soon.  I know, it’s a luxury problem!


Hurry up and join the Elegance and Elephants Facebook group for a coupon code.  There is no time to loose so hurry up and get your back to school sewing starting now!

I'm a mom to four fantastic kids, three boys and a girl. To teenagers and to toddlers so never a dull moment in our household :) We are from Iceland but have been living in Norway since 2001. I have a newfound passion for sewing. My hubby travels a lot for work and I needed something to do at night when the little ones are a sleep because suddenly my teenage boys would rather hang with their friends or play on their pc's than be with me - why is beyond my imagination :) Thanks to Pinterest I found some amazing sewing bloggers, whom I've been stalking, and realized that I could dig out my sewing machine and start sewing. Now it's all I think about. I've been hoarding pdf patterns and learning from all the amazing tutorials that are out there. I've decided to try out this blogging thing as well to document my sewing journey. We'll see how it goes! Thanks for stopping by, I would love it if you would leave me a comment! XOXO Dagbjört
